The new Vivo U20 smartphone looks a lot like the Vivo U10. There’s not much on the front, but a 16-megapixel front-facing camera will be available in the Waterdrop-Notch. This Vivo-branded smartphone will have a larger and higher-resolution screen than the Vivo U10. The Vivo U20 features a 6.53-inch display (1080×2340 pixels), while the Vivo U10 has a 6.35-inch HD+ IPS Halo FullView display (720×1544 pixels). Handling the phone isn’t too difficult, but your hand does have to stretch a bit to reach the top edges of the screen.
The edges around the screen are thin, the screen is bright but we found the colors a bit off. During the review, we will provide you with detailed information about normal screen usage, video playing and gaming experience. The unit we have already comes with an adhesive scratch protector. Apart from this, this Vivo branded smartphone has received DRM Widevine L1 certification.
Vivo has not given gradient and pattern design in this model. We have a Racing Black color variant with a simple monotone finish. A Blaze Blue color variant of the Vivo U20 was also launched in India. As for the material, plastic has been used, which despite being shiny, does not slip.
There is a gold trim around the camera module and Vivo written in gold at the bottom of the phone’s back panel. The camera module has a slightly different design compared to the Vivo U10. The fingerprint sensor is the same as the one on the back of the phone and the hand sensor is easily accessible. Vivo U20 has three rear cameras on the back, a 16-megapixel main camera sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera sensor.

Overall, the build quality and finish of the Vivo U20 are good. It feels a bit heavy as it weighs 193 grams and measures 8.89mm thick. The power and volume buttons are located on the right side of the phone, while the tray is on the left side of the phone, there will be separate slots for two nano-SIM and microSD cards.
The micro-USB port instead of the Type-C port at the bottom of the phone may disappoint you a bit. Other than this, a 3.5mm audio jack and a speaker have been provided. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor has been used in the Vivo U20, along with a 5000 mAh battery that will be available to power the Vivo U20.
Talking about the Vivo U20 price in India, the price of its 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant is Rs 10,990. Its 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage variant costs Rs 11,990. Talking about other specifications, Vivo U20 includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth version 5 and GPS support. An 18-watt charger will be available in the retail box.
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 8 Pro (Review) and Realme 5s smartphones are also available with a budget of less than Rs 15,000. Users who prefer stock Android may not like the level of customization. One thing we liked is that our review runs on the November 2019 Android security patch.
The Funtouch OS version includes a system-wide dark mode. On the left side of the first home screen, on the Jovi Smart Scene page, you’ll see widgets like activity tracking, sports scores, and news. You can customize the user interface with themes. Apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, WPS Office, Dailyhunt, Gaana and Amazon are already installed on our unit. We’ll give you detailed information about camera quality, battery life, display quality and performance in the review soon.
